Chris & Friends

The highlight of the Dolomiti Gourmet Festival at the Grandhotel Toblach begins with an aperitif in the Fourier of the Grandhotel Toblach.  Afterwards, the guests are admitted to the venerable Gustav Mahler Hall of the Grandhotel, where the guest chefs create a 6-course menu with Chris. Sommelière Anita will select the right wines to accompany the meal. The evening will be accompanied by live music. 

A warm welcome to our guest chefs

Andrea Ribaldone - La Fermata
Andrea Ribaldone *

Born in Milan in 1971, his roots are in Piedmont. The first milestone in his professional career was at the restaurant La Fermata, where he was awarded his first Michelin star in 2003. After working with the famous French chef Alain Senderens in Paris at the Lucas Carton restaurant and being executive chef at Eataly Tokyo, in 2012, driven by a great entrepreneurial spirit, he founded ARCO Srl (acronym for Andrea Ribaldone&Consulting), an innovative Restaurant Management Company with the aim of improving the knowledge and enjoyment of great Italian cuisine in all its forms. Arco started a series of important consultancies, management and partnerships, including: the restaurant I Due Buoi in Alessandria in 2014, winning the Michelin Star the following year; the Temporary Restaurant Identità EXPO in 2015, coordinating over 100 chefs. In 2016, the collaboration with Borgo Egnazia began, where Ribaldone is still in charge, together with chef Domenico Schingaro, of the six restaurants of the Apulian structure, including the Due Camini restaurant, which was awarded a Michelin Star in 2018; 2017 saw the start of an important gourmet project at Osteria Arborina in La Morra, which was awarded a Michelin Star that year, a direct management commitment that ended in May 2020; 2018, on the other hand, saw the start of the catering coordination of Identità Golose Milano and the catering project at Lino in Pavia, which is now Chef Ribaldone’s reference address.

Pasquale Rinaldo

“When I cook, I am full of enthusiasm because I create emotions to share with others.”
The chef of the “d’ amore Capri Restaurant” is appreciated for his cuisine with a strong tradition but with a style that is a little POP and a little ROCK.
Fearless and creative, he is constantly on the lookout for the best local raw materials to express himself in his dishes with combinations full of character.

Emanuele Petrosino
Emanuele Petrosino *

Emanuele Petrosino, has been awarded the 2019 “Giovane chef dell’anno” prize by the Michelin Guide. 34 years old, from the province of Latina, he has an interesting CV thanks to the experience he gained in the kitchens of Enrico Crippa’s Piazza Duomo in Alba (Cuneo), with Christopher Coutanceau in La Rochelle and at the Maison Pic in Valence, France; Taverna Estia, Danì Maison and I Portici in Bologna, where he took on his first chef’s role with the reappointment of the Michelin star.

“My cooking,” Petrosino explains, “is now linked to memories. The memory of taste drives me to a constant search for tradition, linked to my Campanian origins.” Beyond the promises and statements, there is also a feature of attachment to place in the word “beauty”: Petrosino’s dishes are indeed beautiful, chromatically perfect, rich in colours and shades, like the sunset in front of us on the lake.

Giuseppe Costantino
Giuseppe Costantino *

After attending hotel school in Cefalù, he began working in various “trattorie” before joining the brigades of some of Italy’s most important restaurants. He has worked with many masters: Accursio Craparo, Andrea Sarri, Giuse Ricchebuono and Enrico Crippa. The chef’s philosophy is to offer cuisine that focuses on the products of the Madonie, where taste is paramount along with aesthetics. He is a great lover of herbs and wild plants, which he offers daily in his dishes.

Vivien Durand
Vivien Durand * FR

Vivien Durand is originally from the Pyrenees and has been passionate about cooking since childhood. So it was only natural for him to graduate from the Catering School of Souillac.

After working in various well-known restaurants in the south and east of France, he began his career with Alain Ducasse in Monaco. He then also worked as a sous chef at the Grand Hotel in Saint-Jean-de-Luz with Nicolas Masse before opening his first restaurant, “La Taverne Basque”, with his wife in 2005. 

This was followed by a second restaurant, “Chez Claire et Vivien”, in the Écomusée Basque Museum, also in Saint-Jean-de-Luz.

The young chef, with his wild yet casual style and Southwestern accent, received his first star in 2013 at “Eguiazabal, Le bar à vin” in Hendaye. Michelin’s choice was surprising at the time: for the first time, a restaurant serving tapas à la carte was included in the red guide!

Encouraged by the multi-award-winning star chef Alain Ducasse, he took over the kitchens of “Prince Noir” in Lormont in 2014.

His creativity unfolds the best in his dishes, which, despite their supposed simplicity, are based on a very sophisticated technique.
